yea. he did say something about that. i'm just making the point that he's not as bad as everyone acts. and i do think save perc is a more telling number than goals against but it is also still sort of a blanket number. it generalizes all shots as equal. i have the center ice package and most good goalies don't make more than 1 or two great saves a game for the most part. the rest are pretty much standard positioning and anticipating the play. the reason i defend him at all is that we allow a lot of goals from defensive breakdowns in the slot, whether their just turnovers or passive coverage. that's what frustrates me more than anything with us. he hasn't been dominick hasek 1999 but things are not his fault. he's played well.
